, what have investigators turned up so far? >> reporter: well, katie, law enforcement tells cbs news that after going through all their files on known or suspected terrorists, they have found nothing to change their belief major nidal malik hasan acted alone. investigators have now begun tracking how major hasan lived and what he did with his money. he was a psychiatrist in the army medical corps with no family to support yet he was living like a private. according to army pay charts, a major with hasan's time in service would make $92,000 a year in base pay and allowances. as a psychiatrist, he would have earned specialty pay on top of that. yet he lived in a $350 a month apartment even though he received $1,100 a month in housing allowance. judging by the things hasan gave away shortly before his rampage, he had few worldly possessions. one possible explanation? members of a mosque where he worshipped said he was a very generous man who helped others pay their utility bills. outside the mosque, he seemed to live in cyberspace. law enforcement sources say he was a prolific communica

with cbs anchor, katie couric, who she calls biased and badgering. >> let's talk about the interview with katie couric. >> must we? >> yeah. >> did you think that was a seminal, defining moment for you? >> i did not. and neither did the campaign. that is why segment two and three and four and maybe five were scheduled. the campaign said, right on. good. you're showing your independence. this is what america needs to see. and it was a good interview. and, of course, i'm thinking, if you thought that was a good interview, i don't know what a bad interview was because i knew it wasn't a good interview. >> reporter: this time, palin is in control. her book tour will crisscross the heartland, avoiding major cities. and hitting lots of battlegrounds. maybe that's a coincidence. or maybe this is a great way to launch a political comeback. remember the "the audacity of hope"? >> let's find out what george has to say about that. >>> and joining us from washington, with "the bottom line," our chief washington correspondent, and host of "this week," george stephanopoulos. >> good morning. >> go

that they talked to katie couric, it was like ambush journalism, with ambush questions like "what do you read?" >> right. >> that's a trick question. not if you read, no, it's not, really. >> caught her off guard. >> anyway, that is the story, isn't it? that question that some see as a softball that governor palin couldn't answer. what do you read? and others, her fans see it as a big-city fastball. >>> next, birther mania lives on. take a look at this billboard out in colorado. it reads "president or jihad? birth certificate, prove it." then, of course, "wake up, america, remember ft. hood." well, that billboard represents the bad streak in american history from the no-nothings in the 19th century to the birchers in the 1950s to the birthers of today. it's nothing new and it's obviously not a great advertisement for america. >>> finally, lou dobbs for president? >> crazy as it may sound, there is talk of lou dobbs for president in 2012. is that crazy talk? >> what's so crazy about that? >> that's what i'm asking you. >> goly, i mean -- >> well, is it crazy talk or is it real? >> i'll tell yo

with katie couric again. wait a minute, isn't that where all the trouble started? >> it is. as i talked to the persecutionist sarah palin that affected independents in particular views of sarah palin and whether she was up to the job of high office. that's why i think if she is considering another run for the presidency, down the line she is going to have to do a grudge match if you will, another sit down with katie couric. i think this time she will be a little bit more prepared. a little bit more comfortable than she was the first time. peter: matthew, how does she overcome the mainstream media? we see christopher hitchens kind of snarky, if not sexist piece in "newsweek" in today's "new york times" review of her book, which is dismissive in some ways. how does she get beyond that? >> it's going to be hard. she is already starting to do that. that's by speaking directly to her supporters. now the book is part of that she is going to do the big name interviews that will humanize her a little wit. the real thing that's happening under the radar are direct communications on facebook and
that her real major misstep was her interview with katie couric. even sarah palin admits that it did not go well. she admitted that to oprah winfrey and talks about it in the book. every aspirant to high office should be it able to answer tough questions. what happened with sarah palin was a cultural revulsion. any rumored to be inherited, every fact that might confirm this caricature of her as some sort of radical conservative bent on taking us back to the stone age was embraced. every factor that contradicted that, which is most of her political profile prior to 2008, directly rebuffs that khartoum. well, those facts were dismissed. host: caller? caller: it seems to me that everything you just said, she seems to have this mentality, as many like her do, that any type of questioning or the slightest bit of negativity is right away and attack. i have not read the book, obviously, it has not come out yet, i am looking forward to it, but from what i have heard a great deal of it is about the left-wing media being out to get her. guest: well, there is something to the fact that people are out

interview with katie couric. >> i was wearing my attitude on my sleeve, which i should not have been. i had just done an op-ed. i had been interviewed by those national media outlets. very unprofessional of me. my fault. my bad that i answered the way that i answered. jon: she says she cannot predict what will happen in 2012. as for her family, she said that she was devastated when her daughter said that she was pregnant. she commented on the father of the baby, who has said that he has detrimental information on her. she told barbara walters that he has nothing on her. jane: lots of confusion this morning about breast health and mammograms. a government panel has released new breast cancer screening guidelines. the group says that women do not need mammograms in their '40's and that everyone should get one every few years or so. the panel also found that self- exams ultimately do not do a lot of good. this is a dramatic break from what the american cancer society has said for so long. dr. manny alvarez is here to tell us what to do with this information. he is a part of our medical a team.

, katie couric, and a number of other administration officials. the fact that they were standing right next to them is shocking. the only time they appeared to finally sort of have to sneak out was right before guests were seated for dinner in the tent that was erected on the south lawn. >> fran, let me ask you one more thing about this. even if they didn't have weapons, they went through magnetometers, look, i can't walk up to the president unannounced and start talking to him and i've been in the news media for 30 years. this is still an enormous breach of security. >> oh, absolutely. and i can assure you that the chief of staff -- any white house chief of staff ought to be pretty angry about this and want to get to the bottom of it. my understanding is, from having spoken to folks at the white house, is that the secret service is looking in to exactly how the breach took place. let's remember, this is a felony. if you lie to a federal official, either to the secret service or to the social secretary, if they lied their way to get in -- and it seems they would have had to have done t

me up. they should consider calling it a troop support tax. another facebook comment from katie, saying my family already paid our tax when my husband was in iraq for a year. if this tax means better armor for the vehicles, great. somehow i think the troops won't see any benefits from this. i got a text from star who says i've been taxed enough this year not to mention i now disagree with the war. and an e-mail from heather. if taxing the war helps bring down the deficit, that's great, but as a military family, we shouldn't be taxed. we've already sacrificed so much for the wars and paying taxes on our already low income wouldn't be fair. we've gotten comments similar to that one like heather's. and an e-mail from rod. the tax leveed for the war effort is perfect. i've waited years for this and similar measures. however, as is usual, a targeting mistake is being made by the politicians. the world needs to pay the tax to the united states for protecting their respective countries. we pay with our blood. they need to pay us for the past, the present, and all the future efforts. th

[laughter] she has a real, is very exciting. the washington press corps is obsess with her. i would stay with that. she can do a tremendous amount of good for the causes she believes in. but if she runs, if you go up there and do not wind -- like me, it is different afterwards. host: callehost: and who won?
